Review: Born Pretty Store Diamond Glequins

These little buggers have given me a bit of trouble since they arrived in the mail. First of all the lid came a little loose in transit and some escaped and landed all over everything else in the package... so then I picked up as many as I could by sticking them to my finger and put them back into the container... Only to open the container today and find that most of the ones on top had stuck together (probably from me touching them). Good thing there are enough in the container to last me a decade so some casualties didn't hurt too bad!   :P

Anyways.. today I have a review of the diamond glitter from Born Pretty Store! :)

These apply the same as the hexagonal glitter or "glequins". I started with a base coat of China Glaze Liquid Leather and Pelican Gray (on the pinky), then while the polish was still a little tacky I added the individual pieces of glitter in the pattern shown and then added top coat. Once I took out some of the pieces that had all stuck together, the glitter was quite easy to work with. (I use an orange stick to pick up the pieces of glitter)

These glitter pieces give me an excellent idea for an argyle nail design (but part of me feels that I have seen another one around somewhere - maybe that's where I got the idea).. either way I will try one one of these days.

The container of glitter retails for $2.38 with 10 colors to choose from. Or you can get all 10 for $19.00.
